We couldn’t think of a better photo exhibit to host in our space, which just happens to be a restored D&H Railroad Freight Depot. “Trains at Night” from William Gill offers a unique look at our railroad heritage and a glimpse into a world that most of us do not notice enough. Our opening reception will take place this Thursday from 6 to 7:30pm, and William will be available to answer questions and to talk about his photos. We are also hosting a display of D&H Railroad memorabilia from the collection of Edward Moulton. For more information please contact the library at 237-0891.

On Saturday February 1st, the library will be participating in the 2nd Annual “Take Your Child to the Library Day” celebration, which was fostered by a children’s librarian in Waterford, Ct. (great ideas come from places named Waterford don’t they) During the day, children are invited to come in and share in a storytime, create a craft and receive a free book and bookmark. We hope to issue some first library cards to children as well! Story-times will take place at 11am, 12 and 1pm. For additional information please contact Liz at 237-0891.
The library will debut its new book club on Wednesday Sept 25th at 10:30am, where we will be discussing the legal thriller “Defending Jacob” by William Landay. Copies of the book are available for reserve at the library or through the online catalog. We look forward to a good turnout and for a lively discussion!
Since this Sunday is the first in awhile that hasn’t included football (we don’t count the Pro Bowl as real football), we thought it was a good time to offer some assistance with those e-readers that many of you received for the holidays. Our crack team of techies will be available from 1-3pm this Sunday Jan 27th to answer your questions, so stop on by! We will also hold another session on Sun Feb. 24th.
